Re: Which Roku
- I purchased the most expensive because it has the media card (but I haven't used it once). My brother bought the lower end model and his works just as well as mine does. If I had to do it again, I'd buy the lower end one. Mary
- I got the ROKU XS because it has a usb port (so I can plug in a flash drive to show pictures or MP4 movies). Since it's wireless, I can pop it in my purse, take it and my flash drive over to a friend's house, and play them a movie (plus show them how they can cut the cable cord themselves!).
I love it!

Subject: RE: [RokuDigitalVideoPlayer] Which Roku
We have two LT's and love them both. We watch a lot of Netflix, HuluPlus
We have just got rid of Direct TV. With the plan to buy a Roku, we are just
wondering which one to buy? What are the main differences between the
different models? All we plan to do basically is watch Netflixs, with that
in mind will the Roku LT at $49 serve our need, or should we pay more for
one of the other models?
- I have two XDS units. Mostly because the XDS has a separate optical audio output which works with my older sound processors which do not support HDMI. This means I can feed digital audio in with HDMI for the TV.If you do not need that, any of the models will probably work well for you. As the dropped the separate optical output I'm not in the market for a new Roku box until I have a new sound processor which do switch HDMI.

- I bought the Roku 2 XS as it's the only current model with a real
Ethernet port and I prefer to hard wire devices which are not really
I've wired the whole house with plenty of ports home run to the
communication closet and a business class gig-E switch that will out
perform wireless any day.
